That was the thing. You never got used to it, the idea of someone being gone. Just when you think it’s reconciled, accepted - someone points it out to you, and it just hits you all over again, that shocking.

The best love stories are not love stories.


"We had been working hard and we were hungry…. There was much to be done.  We were making a new life.  It was not the Old West and there was no frontier but we were making a new life, starting from scratch.  There was no thought of "romance" or "sex" but only of making a new life.  We knew what we were doing.

The New Woman is the survivor of the catastrophe and death of the old worlds…. The worst thing that can happen to her has happened.  The worst thing that can happen to me has happened.  We are both survivors.”- Lancelot, written by Walker Percy
